Women who have large breasts may suffer from medical problems caused by excessive weight; Back pain, neck pain, skin irritation and even skeletal deformities and breathing problems. In addition, bra straps leave unsightly sagging in the shoulder area.
Occasionally, bulky breasts can make a woman or teenager feel extremely concerned about her physical appearance.
Breast reduction, technically known as reduction mammoplasty, is intended for these women.
The procedure removes fat, glandular tissue and skin from the breasts making them smaller, lighter and firmer. You can also reduce the size of the areola, the darker skin area surrounding the nipple. The result of the intervention are smaller breasts and better proportioned with the rest of her body.
Previously the scars that were used for a mammary reduction consisted of a scar around the areola, a vertical and a horizontal forming the traditional one. Currently we use only a vertical scar removing completely the horizontal component. This allows us to have a good aesthetic and functional result with fewer scars.
After this procedure a night of hospitalization is required for the control of the pain and to watch that there are no complications.
For recovery it is important to limit the movement of the arms for two weeks, avoiding heavy loads and not carry out important physical exertion.
